What to Expect from Short Term Rehab

Sunset Senior Living offers professional short term rehabilitation services to those recovering from an illness, surgery, accident, or other serious medical event. Our staff is trained to provide around the clock nursing care to make your stay comfortable, safe, and productive. Each recovery process is unique, so our services are tailored to the individual needs of those staying in our rehabilitation facility. However, we do have a few common goals for everyone recovering with us. Those include:

Reaching your personal recovery goals

Whether you recently experienced a knee replacement or are overcoming the side effects of a serious illness, our staff will meet with you to determine your personal goals. A specialized treatment plan will then be established by our professionals. Our priority is to help you recover, and we celebrate the milestones as your process goes along. We know restoring function can be difficult, and the exercises used in short term rehabilitation can be intense. We’ll help you prepare for rehab, both physically and mentally, to ensure we’re all on the same page about your personal goals and how you’ll reach them.

Maintaining independence

Life may look a little different after short-term rehabilitation. The Sunset Senior Living team will prepare you for leading a full and productive life in your own home and surroundings. We’ll help you learn how to adjust to life-changing events; then encourage you to take what you’ve learned and apply it to your daily life.

It can be overwhelming adjusting to home life after receiving 24/7 care and support in our facility, so we’ll prepare you as much as we can for independent living at home. Short-term rehab can help you manage your pain, increase flexibility and function, and become stronger. This can lead to maintaining independence and a better quality of life.

Assisting in the speed of your recovery process

Because our short-term rehabilitation treatment plans are designed for each patient’s individual needs, they’re created to promote the best recovery in the shortest time as medically possible. Our trained professionals work together to deliver the best care to every patient. This means collaborative treatment plans are set in motion to restore recovery function in a safe, comfortable, and proactive way.
